I think that Hacker News, in particular, has a clever implementation of this, with soft-capped threading. IIRC, you must wait something like n^2 seconds after a comment at level n is posted before you can reply to it. Given the short length of time things stay on the front page, this essentially creates a hard cap, albeit a fairly high one.
